Less than two weeks after signing a seven year contract extension worth $52.5-million, Buffalo Sabres centre Ryan O’Reilly has been charged with impaired driving after a pickup truck collided with a Tim Hortons in Lucan, Ont.
During warm-ups before a Swedish playoff hockey game between Rogle BK and VIK Vasteras HK on Thursday, Rogle's Andre Deveaux viciously attacked VIK's Per Helmersson. After skating from the boards to the middle of the ice, Deveaux wound up and delivered a hard slash to Helmersson's leg before going for his head.
Shockingly, it does not appear, via the box score, as though Deveaux was penalized for his actions. In fact, he recorded an assist in the game and was allowed to play Sunday, too.
Good God, I'm surprised nobody seemed to have caught this, or cared enough to eject the guy after it happened.
